LEAVES' EYES Parts Ways With Bassist

LEAVES' EYES — the German/Norwegian band formed by ex-THEATRE OF TRAGEDY singer Liv Kristine Espenaes Krull and members of ATROCITY — has parted ways with bassist Alla Fedynitch "for personal reasons." The group will play the last two shows of this year — at the Metal Female Voices Fest on October 24 in Wieze, Belgium and on November 19 at the Indian Music Conference in Goa, India — with Dutch session bassist J.B. van der Wal (ABORTED, DR. DOOM).

J.B. van der Wal previously played with LEAVES' EYES at the Bloodstock Open Air and Summer Breeze festivals as well as on the band's last U.S. tour.

"Take The Devil In Me", the new video from LEAVES' EYES, can be viewed below. The song comes off the group's latest album, "Njord", which was re-released in May as a "special fan edition," containing three previously unreleased tracks — "At Heaven's End", "Angus and the Swan" and an acoustic version of "Irish Rain". The set also features an appearance by Liv's sister, Carmen Elise Espenaes from MIDNATTSOL, as a guest vocalist on "Irish Rain". The special fan edition comes with a noble matt and glossy foil printed slipcase, which is strictly limited.

The "special fan edition" of "Njord" consists of the "Njord" digipack, including two bonus tracks, as well as the brand new bonus CD "At Heaven's End", which contains seven non-album tracks, and the "My Destiny" video.

LEAVES' EYES recently entered Mastersound Studio in Germany to begin recording its new album for a tentative early 2011 release.
